Title: Compactification and Fluxes: An AdS{sub 4} Example

Abstract

We discuss explicit examples of compactifications on AdS{sub 4} with fluxes turned on. We show that a class of type IIA vacua recently found within the D = 4 effective approach corresponds to compactification on AdS{sub 4}xS{sup 3}xS{sup 3}/Z{sub 2}{sup 3}. The results obtained using the effective method completely match the general ten-dimensional analysis for the existence of N = 1 warped compactifications on AdS{sub 4}xM{sub 6}. In particular, we verify that the internal metric is nearly-Kaehler and that for specific values of the parameters the Bianchi identity of the RR 2-form is fulfilled without sources. For another range of parameters, including the massless case, the Bianchi identity is satisfied when D6-branes are introduced. Solving the tadpole cancellation conditions in D = 4 we are able to find examples of appropriate sets of branes.
